For disputing couples, families - including those considering separating, those about to separate, step families, blended families, parents and adolescents, adult siblings, transgender, same sex couples and the extended family. Relationship Mediation is for those who wish to restore harmony to fractured relationships, to keep their relationships intact or to help couples to make crucial, robust decisions, and separate peacefully and respectfully. We believe mediation is often sought three years too late. Early intervention is vital, before disputes have caused irreparable damage.
A recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald describes one high profile Australian family crisis.

Many people believe that mediation is just for couples who are separating. Relationship Mediation is highly effective for those who wish to restore and repair relationships and improve their communication and emotional connections, with significant people where conflict threatens harmony.
Relationship Mediation is similar to workplace mediation, in that each party is assisted to resolve their differences and get back to more productive and harmonious employment, except that with relationship mediation parties are assisted to get back to the business of restoring, repairing, rebuilding and enjoying their important relationships
Relationship Mediation assists parties to communicate their needs effectively. Without mediation, miscommunication can cause the real issues to be unrecognised or avoided, and the familiar antagonistic themes to be endlessly replayed. Mediation helps parties to identify and clarify their issues, keep communication productive and moving forward, instead of around and around, or backwards, and generate new options. With an effective, structured model that helps people to make robust agreements, mediation has proven to be the fastest, most effective, convenient and economically sound way to resolve conflict.
Relationship Mediation will help each party to understand the needs of each other, how to relate fairly, respectfully and will help recognise any power imbalance to allow an equal voice to each party. This reduces the conflict, tension and emotional trauma normally associated with the mismanagement of disputes in relationships.
Parties learn how to avoid the enormous damage conflict causes to relationships and children.
Relationship Mediation is available for those who wish to confidentially discuss their issues in their home or at one of our neutral venues, during and after hours 7 days a week, and avoid separation.
Relationship Mediation is hugely valuable in helping couples to communicate their needs and issues, and to understand what it is like for the other person in the relationship.
Relationship Mediation will help families to make robust decisions they can live with now and in the future.
When divorced parents start new relationships, it often puts great strain on all the family. Often disputes surrounding new spouses occurs between the divorcees, or between the new spouse and the children. These should not be ignored or minimised, as acrimony can escalate, making parental atunement difficult and children, as well as adults, suffer.
Skillful and Accredited Mediators assist parties to consider and understand the impact of the new relationship on the children and on parenting. What boundaries need to established? Will parenting styles differ? How will the new blended family communicate? How will the former partner feel about a stranger parenting their children? Each family will have different needs and interests to be sensitively considered and addressed.
Often the mediation begins with the new couple, allowing them to express their needs and concerns and this is sometimes followed up with mediation between the new couple and the divorcees to help them to manage the new dynamics.
Mediation for stepfamilies Mediation is extremely valuable for new and established stepfamilies. InterMEDIATE Dispute Management has specialists experienced in assisting stepfamilies to resolve their disputes, to help bring greater harmony into the homes of stepfamilies who may be searching for answers on how to blend their families peacefully.
Same Sex and Transgender couples and families, as with all our parties, have their individual situations and requirements respected throughout the mediation process.
Grandparents are formally recognised by the family court. Children enjoy a loving relationship and benefit greatly from spending valuable time with their grandparents. As long as their is no risk of harm, time spent with grandparents is considered in parenting plans. As in all areas of family dispute resolution, always in the best interests of the children.
Pre-separation mediation. "Should I stay or should I go?" Often the most daunting question in a relationship is whether to keep working on making a life together, or to separate.
Relationship Mediation is useful for couples who are considering separation, and assists those about to separate to make crucial decisions about their children, their property, finance and their future relationship as parents etc.
As couples we may separate, but children are with us for life. It is vital that we retain lines of communication to enable well balanced children grow into healthy adults.
For couples who would like to speak about how they are going to separate. How they plan to tell their children without damaging their trust or their self esteem. What they will tell their children about the future of their family and how they will be able to ensure the love and care of both parents remains intact.
Pre Separation mediation helps ensure the best way forward for all involved.
